The book is the definitive discography of Pink Floyd 7 inch singles. With the help of the world's foremost Floyd singles collectors, Charles has compiled a simply breath taking book that sets the standard. Apart from entries on releases from countries such as Angola, Costa Rica, Egypt, Jamaica, Kenia, Nigeria, The Philippines and Turkey, Pink Floyd On Forty-Five also features extensive discographies of 7 inch singles from Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and the USA.
The core of the book consists of 7 inch singles that ended up in public, either via the regular route of shops (stock copies) or via record companies to radio stations and journalists (promotional copies). These are brought together in separate chapters per country, starting with Pink Floyd, and followed by Syd Barrett, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright singles, all of them in chronological order, complete with release notes and details. Pink Floyd On Forty-Five concludes with a selection of test pressings and acetates.
